Wireless HD Video Entertainment Applications

Wireless high-definition (HD) video technologies are the next frontier in consumer electronic (CE) connectivity, streaming uncompressed 1080p high-definition video across the living room.

The category is comprised of three technologies: wireless home digital interface (WHDI), Wireless HD, and Wireless Gigabit (WiGig).

Earliest applications for wireless HD video technologies were centered around the CE cluster and were used primarily as HDMI cable replacement. Today it has evolved into the PC cluster connecting mobile PCs to DTVs.

Significant future use will likely be for connecting mobile devices to digital televisions (DTVs). According to the latest market study by NPD In-Stat, they now forecast that nearly 23 million wireless HD video-enabled devices will ship in 2015.

“While all three technologies will see some type of market adoption over the forecast period, WiGig is likely to be the most popular wireless HD video technology,” says Brian O’Rourke, Research Director at NPD In-Stat.

The specification has support from a wide range of technology companies, including silicon vendors, CE device makers, mobile phone vendors, and software companies. In addition, WiGig will be the 60GHz Wi-Fi specification, called 802.11ad.

The market study included the following findings:

  • Desktops, standard notebooks, and netbooks are unlikely to adopt the technology over the length of the forecast period, primarily because of the cost.
  • WiGig/802.11ad is likely to be big in mobile PC docking solutions, and WirelessHD and WHDI are focusing more on CE-based solutions.
  • DTV is the most important market in CE, as wireless mobile PC-to-DTV connections are a key use case for wireless HD videoThe WiGig Alliance has many WLAN silicon vendors among its members, as well as a diverse assortment of major technology companies, including Intel, Microsoft, Panasonic, Samsung, Nokia, and Broadcom.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role.

"HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner . HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Top 10 CFO Priorities Require Rethinking Finance

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) role is essential to digital business growth. While CFOs do not get closely involved in the tactical details of the digital transformation of their functions, they still recognize its strategic importance. According to the latest survey by Gartner, CFOs are faced with the challenge of balancing the need for substantive digital business innovation with financial cost control and risk management. "CFOs will be stretched thinly across many activities in 2023. The survey revealed a wide range of actions CFOs plan to either lead or be significantly involved with," said Marko Horvat, vice president at Gartner. Survey Findings: The Top Ten Priorities Cost Optimization - Cost reduction remains the top priority for CFOs as they look for ways to cut costs and improve efficiency in their operations. This includes identifying cost-saving opportunities through automation, outsourcing, and business process improvement. Business Continuity - The global C
